Thanks, yes, it should of course been in Lens!!
*Main Control.Lens> :t zoom _1 :: State s1 a -> State (s1,s2) a
zoom _1 :: State s1 a -> State (s1,s2) a
:: State s1 a -> State (s1, s2) a
*Main Control.Lens> :t zoom _2 :: State s2 a -> State (s1,s2) a
zoom _2 :: State s2 a -> State (s1,s2) a
:: State s2 a -> State (s1, s2) a
It works beautifully :)
